    The best value I know of is the Lesco Z 2. You can get them with a few hundred hours on them for in between 3500 n 4000. They are good for 6899 but even better for 3500 with little hours. For whatever reason they have horrible resale and are exceptible machines that use quality parts.

    Ask Envy he is the expert on them and he will tell you they compete with mowers in the 10,000 $ range in operation and quality.

    Cheap + long lasting = contradiction.

    Hustler fastrack 25/52. I think they are around $4500, don't quote me on that though.

    Your gonna get what you pay for. What size deck are you looking for? What size engine? The blower price is going to vary but a cheap new ztr will probably run you $5500-$7200 or so.

    how many clients? what is your gross weekly/monthly income? What are your expenses(fuel, insuarnce, maint) per month? these are important questions to help us figure out how much you can afford. you can take out a financing on it, with your dad. PM me if you don't want post numbers.
